About this website

Woodwork is fun,

Learning is fun,

But being taught can be really tiresome

Especially for kids who don’t want to sit still for 6+ hours a day trying to understand concepts and other theory-based knowledge

Teachers are trying to get the key knowledge across by telling, showing and explaining but learning in this matter doesn’t come easily, is about helping kids gain the skills and lessons that woodwork teaches and help the parents and teachers use woodwork to its full potential

My Philosophy on Teaching

I am far from the most experienced teacher on the planet

Giving you the benefit of mine, and others
